Hanover Displays has selected Microsoft Dynamics AX from Columbus IT as their new ERP solution. Microsoft Dynamics has been chosen to provide an integrated solution to help improve the operational efficiencies of the business whilst generating cost savings. Hanover Displays is Europe's leading manufacturer of electronic destination signs for the public transport industry. Established in 1985, the company has consistently grown and developed, continually refining its product range to meet the specific demands of their customers.
Ben Richardson, IT Manager, commented "We have simply outgrown our current systems. Re-keying of data, a reliance of spreadsheets and the inability to gain real insight into our business was beginning to cause increasing inefficiencies with in the business."
Microsoft Dynamics AX will replace the three disparate systems that Hanover is running for finance, manufacturing and repairs. The new 35 user system will include the Industrial Equipment Manufacturing module.
Ben continued, "The fact that it came from the Microsoft stable gave us the confidence that not only would they be around for a long time but the investment in R&D would help us stay ahead of the competition for years to come. Microsoft Dynamics 10 year guarantee and their clear future roadmap made it a low risk option."
"We were extremely impressed with Columbus IT. They have an in depth knowledge of both the product and the manufacturing sector. The size of their customer base and their global footprint gave us great confidence in their ability. We are looking forward to a long and fruitful relationship"
Mary Hunter, Managing Director at Columbus IT commented, "I am delighted that Columbus IT is working with Hanover Displays and I look forward to seeing the project progress over the coming months. Hanover went through a very thorough selection process and we are thrilled that we were the chosen partner to implement Microsoft Dynamics".
